Featured Book Review: Darkbound
Darkbound is an amazing book. Michaelbrent Collings outdid himself with this book. It is not at all what I thought it would be. I took three nights to finish this book because I stayed up way past my bedtime. Darkbound was so suspenseful that I just kept on reading to…

Not bad. Not good either. Other people have written extensivley about the plot of this book, so I’ll forgoe that and simply tell you what I liked and disliked about it. What I liked is the interesting beginning of the book (the mystery of which kept me interested), and the descriptions of top secret military experimentation (it being set in the UK was a plus for me- something different. Most of these books involve Area 51, and I had never heard of Porton Down before). What I disliked were the characters. The ex-soldier who pursues them, for instance—why exactly does he feel so strongly that he needs to kill the main character when all he needs to do is shoot the girl’s corpse in the head to solve all his werewolf-vampire (or whatever they are) problems? It doesn’t make sense. The girl’s motives don’t feel real to me. You could make the argument that she’s just insane, but it still doesn’t make her motives much more compelling. Also, the end sucks.
I hated how he destroyed the quite interesting myth about the monsters’ origin that was set forth in the beginning of the book. Also, in the end there’s no resolution whatsoever. The main character turns into a werepire… and then? Is Mr. Lebbon going to write a sequel? If so, this is excusable, but normally you should advertise the sequel at the same time you publish the first one so that people know why the book ends without resolution.
